First Makeup Do-It-Yourself

Although the art of a full face glam look is what every girl desires, it’s the simple natural look that makes you stand out. This is a simple tutorial that will truly aim to enhance your natural beauty rather than mask it.

How to look like you’ve done it before, naturally.

Although the art of a full face glam look is what every girl desires, it’s the simple natural look that makes you stand out. This is a simple tutorial that will truly aim to enhance your natural beauty rather than mask it. If you are new to the makeup world or just looking for a quick everyday routine then this is perfect for you, it doesn’t require tons of product and takes less than your average makeup tutorial. The best thing about this look is not how easy it is but the amount of product used and your skin will thank you for letting it breath.

Apply moisturizer all over your face.

Apply concealer under your eyes and on any blemishes, then blend out with your fingers. I use the Sephora gel serum concealer in “Dulce”.

Using a spoolie, brush your brows in the direction you want them to go. Then using an eyebrow pencil or any eyebrow product of your choice that’s a shade lighter than your hair, fill in the sparse spots to give the illusion of a fuller look without doing too much. My absolute favorite eyebrow product is the Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Dipbrow Pomade in “Ebony”.

This next step is optional if you’re happy with the way your makeup looks so far. But if you wanted to go the extra mile then at this point you’d set your makeup with a loose powder. I personally love the Black Opal Deluxe Finishing Powder in “Deep”.

Curl the lashes if needed and apply two coats on upper lashes, one coat on lower lashes (optional). I used the Benefit They’re Real lengthening Mascara in “Black”

To finish off your look use a lip balm or lip Vaseline and then apply lipstick. I find that using the lip therapy Vaseline helps keep my lips from drying up especially during colder months. I used the Milani Color Statement in “Uptown Mauve”
